Escape from Tomorrow

With Escape from Tomorrow, one fears the story behind the movie would loom larger than the movie itself. Luckily, that is not the case. After all, it opens with a decapitation on Disney World’s Big Thunder Mountain Railroad roller coaster.

William Friedkin spends a lot of time in his 2013 memoir discussing why Sorcerer didn't click with critics and audiences even though he believes it to be better than his previous film, The Exorcist. Now that Warner Home Video has reissued Sorcerer on Blu-ray, we can see what Friedkin's fuss is all about.

Broadchurch: The Complete First Season

Welcome to the coastal resort of Broadchurch, population … oh, who can keep track, what will all the corpses? Yes, Broadchurch is yet another British television procedural involving the search for a murderer in a quaint little town, just like the limited series The Fall and Top of the Lake.

Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones

Essentially part five in the ridiculously profitable horror franchise, Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones continues the found-footage conceit of the other films. The difference is instead of the scares taking place in rich white suburbia, they do so in a junky apartment complex on a largely Latino side of Oxnard, Calif.

‘2’ the TiVo!

Move over, turtle doves! The 2 Movie Guys unleash a roasted chestnut for Christmas viewing.

By Rod Lott December 21st, 2011

Maybe it won’t boast the same perennial power as the Grinch, but Oklahoma City’s 2 Movie Guys are getting their very own Christmas special, Charlie Brown!

“2 Movie Guys’ Intergalactic Holiday Showdown” features KAUT-TV 43’s weekly host duo of Ryan Bellgardt and Lucas Ross, here being abducted by aliens who mistake them as leaders of Earth. (As if!) Awaiting them in space are as many CGI creatures as a $500 budget will allow. Guest starring is local legend John Ferguson, aka Count Gregore, as the “not-so-evil Duke of Mukedon.”

“2MGIHS” — as it would appear in marketing, if this were a studio tentpole — is set to air at 5 p.m. Christmas night on KFOR-TV 4, and again as part of a two-hour 2 Movie Guys marathon on KAUT that begins at 6 p.m.

As part of that marathon, the comedy team’s three previous specials will re-air, featuring appearances by Kristen Wiig, Bill Hader, Conan O’Brien, Michael Caine, The All-American Rejects, the Oklahoma City Thunder Girls, B.J. Wexler, Bart Conner, Nadia Comaneci, Linda Cavanaugh, Kevin Ogle and killer robots.

You’ve been pwned, Tim Allen. (Not that you weren’t already.) —Rod Lott
